health insurance and the prior preexisting conditions insurers used included things like having had a baby by c section or having been a survivor of intimate domestic violence. a full range of healthcare services that women need are going to be covered by the health plans. >> the court termed the individual mandate requiring every american to have healthcare coverage or pay a penalty a tax. so the justices cannot rule on the constitutionality of new taxes until they are levied. this could lead to a rehearing by the supreme court on so-called obama-care again as late as 2015. >> i think a healthcare reform is always a work in progress. i think we have solidified the gains that we made with the affordable care act. in the immediate term, i think that we'll see votes in congress in an effort to repeal the law. i don't think that that is going to happen. i think we'll see healthcare reform as a topic in the election. but what we have in place now is a firm foundation for moving forward to make sure that everyone particularly including women, have affordable and strong coverage. >> so debr
